Anderson deliberately delaying return?

I was thinking about the UFC MW division and the disarray that it currently is in. Outside of the Belfort fight there isn't much left for Silva. Not only that but Anderson only has two more fights on his contract. I think the UFC wants the two biggest fights for the remaining fights. Do you think possibly, the UFC conspired with Anderson to stay out a little longer to maybe make time for GSP to move up to Middleweight, OR for Shogun to possibly beat Lyoto and set up a huge fight at 205? I don't put much into it, and I know the injury was legit, but as tme passes, I'm slowly thinking that a superfight s inevitable before Anderson retires.

Dont know if its true or not but Ed Soars had stated that Anderson was not going to retire after his contract was up and that he still had more fights in him.

I believe he already that he will sign with the UFC again, meaning that he will have another 5 fights or so before he officially retires.

what if Chael is just telling the truth and Anderson just sends this clown out there (Soares) to discredit every contender moving up the latter. From Hendo, Nate and Belfort (how dare he wanna fight a brazilian) and now discrediting Chael yet always keeping talk about fighting at lhw or wanting to fight Frank Mir or something

i dunno, i think the Spider is likely the best fighter on the planet but im growing tired of him and his puppet trash talking while trying to act humble.

I want Chael to give him that verbal beating and at least give him a good fight after ;P

I also read that Anderson was not going to retire. I also doubt that Silva would ever go after the LHW title. Let's say shogun beats Lyoto, then Anderson beats Shogun for the belt, where does that leave Machida. They have openly stated numerous times that they would not fight (Silva/Machida) so if Anderson has the title, that leaves Lyoto lost in the LHW division.

What trash talk from Soares are you talking about? All I've read is in response to Sonnen's verbal diarrhea.

Sonnen is a tool, he has proven it with his comments in the past month, and with his comments after his loss to Filho. Yeah, he is a good GnP fighter, but he's a tool that I don't care to watch.

If Silva can destroy Hendo, he can annilihate Sonnen.

I think he will be Sonnen, but Henderson and Linland have both said that Sonnen is the best wrestler at Quest. His standup is not the same as Hendo's, but that just means Sonnen will focus more on the ground than standing up.

I hate when someone doubts a person for specific reasons then everyone starts running with it.


If anderson destroys vitor all you haters will be back on his nuts...

lets not get carried away anderson doesn't need respect from the fans. What he needs is respect from his peers and The big names (gsp, penn etc.) already give him his praise. All you need to do is go to youtube and hear what these guys say if you're so inclined

Anderson is scared of Vitor. He keeps delaying this fight. It will be his toughest test as champion, and I hope to God that he gets KO'd. Can't stand the guy.

Hey Hit good that you bring that one up. I had a conversation with IronMan here and he doesn't believe, that Dan and Lindland both said that Sonnen is the best Wrestler at Team Quest.

Do you have a source on that?? Or do you know it 100% because I was pretty sure as well.
